Kuromatsu Hakushika Hitomebore Junmai [Japanese sake Hyogo Prefecture 720 ml]




Junmai sake that purely uses Iwate Prefecture’s rice, “Hitomebore”. As the saying “first malt, second yeast, third brewing” goes, malt-making is an essentially process which greatly influences the taste of sake. Through years of research, Hitomebore is perfectly suited for Hakushika, and was found to be able to make high quality malt. This is a junmai sake that has the soft umami of the rice, as well as a nice sourness and richness.
